Food, diet and pregnancy #Fail
I had big plans for this pregnancy. I was going to be the super fit mom who worked out every day. I was going to stay slim and not give into cravings. I wanted to maintain sleek arms and fit into my clothing right up until my due date. I wanted to inspire others and let them know that YOU CAN DO IT ALL.
26 weeks later.. I still haven’t started that goal. Failure? Nah. I decided that I was going to watch what I ate and exercise when I wasn’t sleeping or running after a toddler. This pregnancy has exhausted me to no end and, yea I let life get in the way.. What happened to my #NoExcuseMom attitude I had just months before? It went out the door. I now only walk to be able to give into my garlic rice cravings. I walk to be able to share a ice cream cone with my toddler. I traded squats for mommy snuggles with my first born. I traded planks for extra Z’s.
By no way is this a dig at the super fit pregnant mama’s, but I want those who don’t have the energy from creating a human to know that it’s okay to indulge in the pregnant mom life. Throw it around as an excuse from time to time to avoid unloading the dishwasher or sleeping in a few more minutes. Pretty soon your life is about to change, again(or for the first time!).
